It's coming, it's coming, it's coming!

Orange County Executive Steven M. Neuhaus announced this week that the inaugural New York Air Show, headlined by three branches of the U.S. Military, will be held at Stewart International Airport in New Windsor on August 29-30.

The U.S. Air Force F-22 Raptor, the most advanced fighter aircraft in the world, will headline the show and since there are only 186 F-22’s in the fleet, the U.S. Air Force limits the Raptor’s air show demonstrations to just 20 each year.

 

Other headliners include the Marine Corps AV-8B Harrier demo..

 

the Navy  and the Navy Seals Leap Frogs.

 

According to the Office of the Orange County Executive press release, other performers will include the Horsemen, a three ship P-51 formation flight team, the GEICO Skytypers, a six aircraft World War II era flight team and former National Aerobatic champion Mike Wiskus in the Lucas Oil Pitts. The New York Air Show will also feature a diverse display of static aircraft for the public to enjoy.
